Can The S&P500 Breakout Past The Previous All-Time High?

November 9, 2020

By Orbex

The US equity markets continue with a volatile week, on account of various narratives.

Last week, the S&P500 index managed to recover the losses from the week before. After the doji formation near the support level, the index managed to recover strongly.

The gains pushed the index back above the 3388 level to close at 3517 and well above the 50-day moving average. Price is now a couple of points off from the previous all-time highs of 3588.

The gains above this level could be only driven by some fundamental news that the markets have not discounted yet.

A close above the previous all-time highs is needed to confirm further gains.

However, if the S&P500 begins to reverse direction, we could see the sideways consolidation continuing for the near term. But for the moment, watch how price action reacts near the 3388 level.

As long as this support holds, we could be looking for a retest of the 3588 level soon enough.
